Basil Hummus Crusted Chicken

Looking for a green recipe for Saint Patrick’s Day? Look no further! This delightful green chicken will tickle your tastebuds! So simple to make, healthy, inexpensive and everyone will love it!

You’ll need:
2-4 chicken breasts
15 oz can chickpeas, drain half the liquid
1 1/2 cups of basil (about 2 oz)
2 tbls lemon juice
1 garlic clove
1 tbls olive oil

1. Blend together the chickpeas, basil, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil and a dash of salt and pepper. This is an awesome hummus recipe just to eat with veggies or chips! Since I only made 2 chicken breasts, I had a lot leftover 🙂 Perfect for tomorrow’s snack!

2. Prep your chicken. If the breasts are kinda large, you may want to tenderize them. Or, even better, cut them into cutlets so that way the ratio of hummus to chicken is more equal! But, if you’re in a rush, the whole breast will do just fine.

3. Line a baking sheet with tin foil for easy clean up. Drizzle a little olive oil, then add the chicken. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spoon 2-3 tablespoons onto the chicken and spread it out so it covers the whole top of the breast. Cook at 450 degrees fahrenheit for 25-30 minutes. If you are using cutlets, check them after about 10!
